Time bomb on the loose....

...in the state of Washington. Found this at Breitbart.com;

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A criminally insane killer from eastern Washington is on the run after escaping during a field trip to the county fair that his mental hospital organized. (Are the inmates running that asylum?)

Why such a dangerous person was out in public was a question many, including Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire, were asking as authorities searched for Phillip Arnold Paul.

Authorities at Eastern State Hospital, where Paul is a patient, are being criticized for allowing him to visit the fair despite his violent criminal past and a history of trying to escape. (Ya think?)

"Why was he allowed to take such a trip?" the governor said Friday. "Why did they go to a location that was so heavily populated with families?" (Hey Gov, homocidal maniacs are people too!)

Authorities believed Paul, 47, was headed for the Sunnyside, Wash., area where his parents and many siblings live. (I'll bet they're sleeping well tonight, or not.)

Paul was committed after he was acquitted by reason of insanity in the 1987 slaying of an elderly woman, whose body he soaked in gasoline to throw off search dogs. Paul buried the woman's remains in her flower garden. (Yep, crazy as a shithouse rat. Shoulda been locked up with no chance of getting out.)

In 1991, Paul walked away during a day trip to a Washington lake and was later captured. He attacked a sheriff's deputy in the jail booking area, knocking him unconscious, and was convicted of first-degree escape and second-degree assault. (So he has a history of trying to escape and these fools STILL took him to the fair?)

Spokane County sheriff's officials were told Paul had $50 when he escaped Thursday—enough money to buy a bus ticket, said sheriff's spokesman Dave Reagan.

Paul also had time, according to a union that said hospital administrators waited nearly two hours before calling law enforcement. The union said workers alerted their superiors minutes after discovering Paul's escape.

"They believe he was an extreme escape risk and the administration should never have allowed him on the field trip," a statement from the Washington Federation of State Employees said. "The workers have unsuccessfully fought to stop the outings for murderers, rapists and pedophiles committed to the hospital as criminally insane." (All of which tells me this isn't the only dangerous nutjob checking out corn dogs and cotton candy.)

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich also insisted there was a two-hour delay before law enforcement were alerted, while Susan Dreyfus, secretary of the Department of Social and Health Services, said it was not clear how long it took.

Paul is a white male, 5-foot-8, 220 pounds, with brownish-gray hair, blue eyes, and a goatee. At the time of his escape, Paul was wearing a red windbreaker jacket, with a T-shirt and jeans.

Paul has been on and off a variety of medications over the years, and also been in and out of institutions, his brother Tom Paul said.

"He is in a bad mental state," his brother, Tom Paul, told The Associated Press. "Why would they load him on a bus and take him to a fair?" (Because they're idiots.)

Thirty-one patients from the mental hospital were on the trip Thursday with 11 staff members. Dreyfus said she did not know how many of those had violent criminal backgrounds. (Lovely.)

Patients must be cleared by a treatment team before they can go on trips to stores, parks, and other sites, said Dr. Rob Henry, director of forensic services at Eastern State. They wear street clothing and staff members are required to keep each patient within eyesight at all times. (Why in hell aren't they shackled to them if they MUST go out?)

Henry said trips to the fair were an annual event. The last escape from the forensic unit occurred in 1992, he said. (Uh-huh. Was that the last escape attempt or the last SUCCESSFUL ONE?)

It is possible a 15-day review, which will be in part conducted by the state Department of Corrections, will end such outings, Dreyfus said. She has ordered an investigation that includes both state mental hospitals. (Possible? Possible? These people are just as nutso as their patients and just as dangerous if they're exposing the general public to danger in such a blase fashion!)

The state Department of Social and Health Services, meanwhile, has ordered an immediate end to trips like the one taken Thursday to the fair and launched an investigation into the practice.

Paul had a normal childhood in Sunnyside, 200 miles southwest of Spokane, his brother said.

But he started acting strangely as a high school student, his brother said, and he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Paul was living in a halfway house in Spokane last year, but ended up back at the hospital in a very agitated state, Tom Paul said. Hospital officials said Paul hadn't exhibited violent behavior in years. They argued in the past that he should be released, but his petition for release was rejected in 2003. (What. A. Crock. If he killed someone and is found not guilty by reason of insanity he should NEVER, EVER be let out of the loonybin. Period. End of story.)

The sheriff's office said Friday that Paul's medication should keep him stable for 14 days. (Terrific, glad I don't live in Washington. But that doesn't mean something similar isn't happening here in Texas. Sad to say but sometimes you'd think this state was having an invasion of the liberal bodysnatchers. I'm not joking either. Thank God for the 2nd Amendment.)

Back in "68" when I first became a cop, I began to see that the mental health system was badly broken, at least here in NY State.

On a regular basis, we would deal with all sorts of heinous crimes, murder, rape, very serious assaults that had been commited by someone who was "on pass" out of some local mental institution or another. It just defied ALL common sense.

Over the years, I had the occasion(s) to have to deal with these so called "Doctots" or staff and I learned that the answer to your first question was a resounding YES!!! These people were all about the "rights" of the mentally disabled patient and honestly could not (or would not) see that they (the patients) were a danger to themselves or others!

These people are as "dinky dao" as the inmates/patients, maybe even more so!!

I read an article written by a doctor year or so ago, and he believed that "Liberalism" was a diagnosable mental illness. Yes, the inmates ARE running the institution!! **Sigh**

Who is going to lose their job over this bone headed decision? Someone desperately needs to be on the unemployment line after this.

i thought the brother's comment about "what were they thinking?" the most telling. what a bunch of maroons.

What part of "Lock them up and throw away the key" do they not understand? These officials in Washington are criminally stupid people.
